Housekeeping victory in new Essex contract

EssexOn February 21, hotel workers at the Essex hotel ratified a new contract that will cover workers for five years.  An overwhelming majority of workers ratified the new contract.

Workers are especially excited for a great victory for housekeepers in the new contract. Starting June 1, 2014, Room Attendants’ room quota will be reduced from 16 to 15 rooms. Additionally, they will all receive a functional cart with space for linen. 

Great work on behalf of the negotiating committee who helped achieve this victory: Zola Redmond and Carmen Gonzalez.
